Former Hardeeville officials indicted on misconduct charges
HARDEEVILLE, SC (WTOC) -
Five former Hardeeville officials have been indicted on charges of misconduct in office.
Court records show former city administrator Shane Haynes, former police chief James Hubbard, former fire chief John Ekaitis, former police lieutenant Eric Washington and former city treasurer Santesia Henderson abused public positions.
The papers do not outline the exact misconduct but say it occurred between 2005 and 2006.
Back in 2008, South Carolina Law Enforcement Division launched an investigation into finances after a 4-year audit showed irregularities.
